With Antonio Brown returning to practice, it looks like Tom Brady could also have one of his favourite targets back against the Giants on Monday night. Tight End Rob Gronkowski, who hasn’t played since suffering a rib injury in the Rams’ Week 3 loss in Los Angeles, was a full participant in practise on Thursday.

ICYMI: Rob Gronkowski suffers a rib injury after week 3 fixture

After catching a short throw from Brady, the 32-year-old tight end was hauled down by Rams linebacker Terrell Lewis. Gronkowski left the field in pain, but returned after being examined on the sidelines.

X-rays on Gronkowski’s ribs did not detect a fracture, according to head coach Bruce Arians. However, the ailment continued to affect him, and as a result, it forced him to miss some crucial games of this season. All in all, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Quarterback has missed 7 matches for the Bucs since his injury. Luckily for them, it looks like their misery won’t last longer as the Tight End was a full participant in practise on Thursday.
